The VNA Nazareth Home Care Safe Sight Program provides the specialized care for people with low vision. Our goal is to equip patients with the skills, aids and confidence needed to function as independently as possible.
What is low vision?
Low vision is a visual impairment that can not be corrected by standard eyeglasses, contact lenses, medication or surgery. Most people with low vision have some usable sight and the loss has been gradual.
The program benefits patients with:
- Macular Degeneration
- Diabetic Retinopathy
- Brain injury/Stroke
Patients with diagnoses that contribute to vision impairment would also benefit.
Safe Sight Staff
Our program utilizes registered nurses, physical therapists and occupational therapists with advanced low vision training.
- Falls prevention and retraining in ADL’s
- Retraining and adapting the patient’s home environment with safety as the priority
